Distracted Driver Flips Car

Posted: Updated:

COMANCHE COUNTY_A cell phone may be the culprit behind a car accident late Saturday night. 

 

Just before 11 PM a man headed west on Meers-Porter Hill Road about 4 blocks west of US 62 reached to answer his ringing cell phone.

When the man went to answer he veered off the roadway and then tipped his car in an attempt to over correct.

An officer on the scene said the man had just had an argument with his wife. 

The driver was not injured, but he was cited for inattentive driving.
